“Enjoyed our Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2008

We have stayed at the Starlight Motel two years in a row during the Lone Pine Film Festival. The owners have always been very friendly and very accomodating. The rooms have always been very clean. Bathrooms are small but very clean also. We liked the fact that it was a little ways away from Lone Pine and not far from Bishop. We are actually going to be staying again this year.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2006

This was exactly the type of motel that I was looking for the night before my son and I hiked White Mountain Peak. Something reasonable, clean, relatively close to the trailhead and memorable. I had all the things I was looking for supplied. It was $52 with tax for the night. The room was very clean. It was only an hour to the trail we were going to. And finally it was memorable. We arrived at the hotel after driving through Death Valley from Vegas (118 degrees!) and rang the bell. After a minute the owner (I assume) came to greet us with his hair still wet. He said he just got out of the shower. That's what I am talking about memorable. Who remembers the last Hampton Inn they stayed at but I'll fondly remember the Starlight Motel. Thanks!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2005

Stayed here last week (June 2005) on the basis of reviews read. Small and simple rooms, but immaculate and very clean. Very friendly and obliging hosts. Bathrooms are small and tall people may have difficulty getting under the shower head. Fridges and coffee makers in rooms. No breakfast served. Limited eating options in town for dinner Bishop only 14 miles away has plenty), but diner nearby does good breakfasts.
